Oregon Coast Highway Souvenir Folder

Oregon Coast Highway Souvenir Folder
Originally uploaded by Jasperdo
Thanks to Flickr user Jasperdo we have a great set of historic postcards up at Flickr showcasing the Oregon Coast.

Click on the picture for more of this neat set which appears to be from 1951 after the completion of the Oregon Coast Highway, still one of the world's most scenic drives.

Bridges along the coast remain one of the state's attractions as they span the many rivers and streams as they spill into the Pacific all along the Oregon Coastline.

The cards list the cost of the Gold Beach Bridge, a beautiful concrete structure over the Rogue River, as $600,000 - millions shy of the budget just a few years ago to paint and restore this beautiful, massive span at the mouth of the Rogue River.
